Wednesday after work plumtreeblossom
and I went to the final outdoor Landmarks Orchestra concert at the Hatch Shell of the season, Verdi’s Requiem
. (The shell was insanely crowded, with a full orchestra, four solists, and, according to the program, a “double chorus”, whatever that means.) It’s not my favorite piece of music, but I had a great time with my sweetie; I love listening to music outdoors. I’m very lucky to live in a city with these sorts of opportunities.
And there were a few toddlers who danced to the music, up by the stage. They were adorable, especially the first one, who looked so earnest and at the same time, so into what she was doing! If she’d still been there by the end of the concert I would have gone up to her and thanked her for her performance.
Thursday I met plumtreeblossom
and most of Team Uterus from her show in Festival@First V
, and the wonderful oakenguy
, who organized the trip — to see the MIT Musical Theatre Guild’s performance of Into the Woods
, with a brief (but lovely) appearance and amazing, awesome sets by fellow Uterus Fairy brief_life
. We had a wonderful, wonderful time!
When I got home from work last night, cathijosephine
asked me if I wanted to go out for margaritas (oh, and maybe food, while we were at it). Yes, I did. So we had a lovely time drinking margaritas and coladas and eating potato skins at Acapulco’s in Quincy Center.
And tonight sweet plumtreeblossom
and I are going to Providence for WaterFire
, one of our favourite romantic dates. And tomorrow we get to have dim sum with NPCs¹ J. and S. and some of their friends, which I’m sure will be lovely.
I do still need a few more days in the week, though.
¹ I.e., they don’t have LJ accounts.
